Mads Emil Dreyer (b. 1986)
I'm a composer currently studying in the soloist class at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen. I’ve also done my bachelor’s and master’s degree at this school. My music has a quite condensed character and it often unfolds within simple and focused processes. It’s both static and progressive - apparently very little happens, but beneath the surface it is always developing. My pieces often use much of the same material from start to finish, which is why I think it makes sense to view them as pictures or sculptures unfolding in time.
